Stating that they have been trying to ensure that they are used in these geographies by promoting the products they have produced for years, Vardan said: "Our friends put a lot of effort into it. As a result of 4-4.5 years of work, we signed the agreement for 3 ANKAs. Of course, this might sound very simple as 3 equipment. But we need to look at the next dimension of the event and the importance of ANKAs for this region. When you come out, you are not the only seller, you are not the only one presenting your products. You are competing with the countries of the world in a big arena. This whole process has tired us out for 4.5 years, but it is a sweet fatigue. It was a source of pride for all of us, for the whole team, that we signed the agreement. It is an important work for Turkey as well. It will not stop there. This is the first phase we call Phase-1. We think that it will continue after this."
Stating that during the fair, top executives, especially the King of Malaysia Sultan Abdullah Shah, visited the TAI stand, Vardan emphasized that the King of Malaysia also visited TAI and that he knew them very well. Vardan said: "Our relations will not only be with ANKAs. We know that they are also interested in HÜRJET
. The fact that HÜRJET has made its first flight and will be included in the inventory within 2 years has opened the door for us. In addition to our desire to diversify ANKAs and increase their numbers, we also want to present HÜRJETs." King himself said during his visit. He is also interested in our KAAN
. He is also a pilot. They are arranging a place for us here for our GÖKBEY. They want to assemble and build GÖKBEY here.
We have a study about them. Actually, we are only in the position of selling. In other words, when we look at it as a company strategy, we try to work on how we can do this hand in hand, arm in arm, how we can develop the win-win principle."
Kaan will be a great replacement for their Su-30's.
